SECOND BIENNIAL EXHIBITION OF 



AMERICAN PAINTING 



OF TODAY 



NOVEMBER 1 — DECEMBER 15 
1935 



WORCESTER ART MUSEUM 

WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS 
U.S.A. 



FOREWORD 

IN presenting this exhibition of contemporary American 
painting the Museum follows the precedent established 
two years ago on the occasion of the first showing of 
American Painting of Today. As in the case of the last 
show the present collection of oils and water colors aims 
to be national in scope but with a greater emphasis 
than heretofore upon the work of artists residing in New 
England. This seemed to the Committee of Selection 
not only fitting because of the geographical position of 
the Museum but also because of the gratifying increase of 
talented painters in this region in the course of the past 
few years. Encouraged by federal interest in art projects, 
many of these younger artists now, for the first time, have 
an opportunity of showing their work in company with 
that of their fellow artists throughout the country. Within 
the limitations of our space it has been the intention of 
the Committee to bring before the public in as compre- 
hensive a manner as possible the various trends in painting 
today without stressing particular schools, whether they 
be radical or conservative in purpose. 

The Trustees have appropriated a substantial sum for 
purchase prizes, the pictures to enter the permanent 
collection. 

The Committee for the Museum wishes to express its 
deep appreciation to the artists, collectors and dealers 
mentioned in the catalogue. Their generous co-operation 
has made this exhibition possible.
